SSBC#2 - Winter Birthday Card

Hello and welcome!

I'm delighted to share a card I have made for the second Serendipity Stamps Blog Challenge (SSBC#2)! Come and join us for our second bi monthly challenge and you could win $20 (approx. £12) off your next order! 

Our challenge is to create a Winter Birthday Card using at least one Serendipity Stamps product.  We have several winter birthdays to consider in our family and things are getting pretty busy around here what with all the Christmas preparations - so this challenge has turned out to be very well-timed!

I used Serendipity Stamps Snowman with Watering Can stamp to create this quick and easy card...

I stamped the image using Brilliance Pearlescent ink for a real subtle sheen and added some delicate colour using Copic markers. I left a fair bit of him uncoloured as he's made of snow, but also because there is so much amazing detail to these stamps that they are beautiful in their own right. I stamped 'Happy Birthday' along the bottom using the sentiment from the 'Everyday Words - Large Horizontal' set.
He's such a happy little fella - I do hope that he will bring joy to the recipient too. 
Do stop by the rest of the Serendipity Stamps Design Team to enjoy all their Winter inspired  Birthday cards won't regret it :). Here are the links to their blogs:

Love your shimmery card's so funny but just the addition of those two little sparklies to the snowflakes adds so much to a card, along with that pretty bow and pearl, of course!

Your snowman is adorable Helen! The soft blue color and shimmery pearlescent ink along with that happy snowman just make me think of snow and bring a smile to my face! As always, beautiful my friend!
